are you just trying to connect to the the switches while they are running?  If so, I dont think you will gain access to them without rebooting.

I had the same problem, no matter how i configured the hyperterm, i couldnt bring up the screen.  Try this

1.  Connect to the switches with hyperterm as specified by nortel.
2.  Power the switch off and on while still connected with hyperterm

You should now see the console for the switch.
